Despite leaving Goa 3 hrs late, Tejas reaches Mumbai a minute early

Story: Agencies | 13th June 2017, 04:56 Hrs

No matter how late you leave, if you turn up on time – or even better if you turn up early – you are bound to surprise people.


New Delhi
 
The same happened with Tejas Express train. Tejas Express left Goa on Sunday at 10.30am as against the schedule time of 7.30am.  
However, the train reached Mumbai at 7.44pm, a minute early than its arrival time.  
The Tejas Express which was pressed into service last month made up for the lost time by travelling at 153 kmph between Karmali and Kudal stretch and then at 137 kmph between Kudal and Ratnagiri and 125 kmph between Ratnagri and Panvel.  
Tejas Express is a state of the art train capable of running at the speed of 200 kmph with ultra modern amenities run between Mumbai and Karmali (5 days a week during non-monsoon period and 3 days a week during monsoon period).  
Equipped with CCTV cameras besides smoke and fire detection system, the 19-coach Tejas train has bio- vacuum toilets and GPS-based passenger information display system.  
Since the train is equipped with better facilities, the fare is slightly higher as compared to normal mail/express service. 
There are comfortable seating arrangements and each seat has LED TV with touch control system and call bell facilities. 
The coaches have automatic entrance door, a first in non- suburban train in Indian Railways and even tea and coffee vending machines and snack tables.
